Mississippi Thrive Provides Great Resources for Families

Parents & Kids talks with Dr. Susan Buttross  and Heather Martin.  They provide information on helping children deal with the stress of Covid-19 and share a number of great FREE resources for parents wanting their children to have the best start possible.

They will tell us about the Child Health and Development Project, also known as Mississippi Thrive which is on a mission to improve the developmental health for children from birth through the age of five in our state.  

Also discussed is Vroom® an initiative that turns shared moments into brain building moments. And don’t miss out on a chance to download a copy of a free book written just for Mississippi kids during the Covid-19 crisis.  

Our children are our most valuable resource! Learn about ways to give your child the best foundation possible.

The Child Health and Development Project: Mississippi Thrive! (CHDP) is a joint project of the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s (UMMC) Center for the Advancement of Youth (CAY) and the Social Science Research Center (SSRC) of Mississippi State University (MSU). The CHDP is funded by the Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA). Mississippi Thrive! is working to improve the developmental and behavioral health of children ages 0-5 in Mississippi. We are doing this by working with parents, early childhood professionals, and health care providers to enhance attention to developmental milestones and strengthen children’s brain architecture. This project is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $10.5 million with 0 percent financed with non-governmental sources.
